Almost Big Brothers Again!

These three dudes have done this before ...

... but I can hardly believe my tiny baby is almost a big brother!

Baby Griffin should be here any day now. We're all getting very excited to meet him!

Christmas Cards from SHUTTERFLY

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Now is the time to start working on Christmas cards! There are a lot of different ways to go about doing this, but for mama's like me, Shutterfly is the perfect way to go! They make it easy and affordable to send our loved ones Christmas cards that are personal, eye catching, and creative! We've even used them in the past for cute birth announcements! They're the best!

My personal favorite option this year is their designs that allow for multiple pictures to be inserted! This is such a cool way to include photos from throughout the past year, photos of each child separately, etc.! The card that I'm designing with Shutterfly for this year will actually include a picture of each of our four little boys, a picture of our entire family from our big vacation, AND a sonogram picture of our newest addition! I am totally thrilled to get to order and send these out!

Click on the following links to check out some of my favorite products from Shutterfly:
  • Photo Christmas Cards - This is where you'll find all those fun options to include your multiple pictures!
  • Calendars - These are a great gift idea for family, friends, and yourself! Enjoy your family photos all year long!
  • Story Cards - This is a neat way to incorporate the tradition of writing Christmas letters with updates on each member of the family!

Shutterfly is having a fun promotion right now! You can actually click on this link to get information on how bloggers can get 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly!

Thanks, Shutterfly, for giving mama's like myself this opportunity to share what we can do with your help! Happy Christmas card designing!!!

26 Week Belly Pics - Thanks to Mom & Sis!

My mom and sister were planning on taking her (my sister's) maternity pictures yesterday, and they invited me to join in too! So I went over to Tanya's house and got some fun pictures of my baby bump at 26 weeks! Tanya did all of the planning work for the photo shoot. She collected pose ideas and props, and was kind enough to share with me! We had a really great time doing it!

This first one is one of my favorites!

I love this one with his name printed on the little gift tag!

Here you can see my baby bump and my sister's baby bump - close to each other (as I'm sure the two new little guys will spend lots of their time in the years to come).

I am so grateful to have been able to capture this precious time that I want to treasure forever!

Hillbilly Bone?

Last night Ollie and I were sitting at the computer watching his favorite music video: "Hillbilly Bone." He had been asking for it all day yesterday ... he calls it "Be-be bo-bo."

Well we had been playing it over and over again, singing and dancing along, when Dylan comes home from playing outside. He walked up behind us and listened for a while. Then he very seriously asked, "MOM? WHERE IS THE HILLBILLY BONE?"

He completely expected it to be an actual location on our bodies! :)

Baby Number Five and Mama's Size

Here's a new look at baby number five - at 16 weeks. We had an opportunity to see our newest little baby in another sonogram this week. He looks so cute! It's amazing how fast they grow in there! He was moving his little hands and feet all around! How precious is that?!?!

Since I haven't posted any belly pictures yet, I need to play catch-up. Here's the belly at 10 weeks ...

... and here is the current belly at 16 weeks.

I guess the "normal" guidelines for when you're supposed to get however big no longer apply after you've had a certain number of babies. I'm not worried ... they're 100% worth it!

I know I need to blog but ...

... I have nothing interesting to show for my time lately!

Are there other Mama's out there like me? I have such a strong desire to be the super-amazing wife and mama, but I can never seem to get it all done! As soon as I accomplish one thing, the last thing I finished is already undone or needing to be done again. Blah!

Guess I need to get off the computer and at least try ... any tips would be greatly appreciated! :)
